Farida Amadou is a self-taught bass player based in Liège, Belgium. The electric bass has been her main instrument since 2011. In 2013, she started to play various musical genres, including blues, jazz and hip-hop. That same year, she developed a great interest in improvised music when she met L’Oeil Kollectif members and started to play with percussionist/drummer Tom Malmendier. The Nystagmus duo was born in late 2014. Since 2014, she has performed with many musicians all over Europe. In February 2018, Farida Amadou joined the punk/noise band ‘COCAINE PISS’. A few months later, Cocaine Piss recorded their album Passionate and Tragic at Electrical Audio Studios in Chicago with Steve Albini. In May 2018, she started a new duo project with the London-based drummer Steve Noble, including trio collaborations with Alex Ward on clarinet, Chris Pitsiokos on saxophone, ex-Sonic Youth guitarist Thurston Moore on guitar and recently, with the free jazz pioneer Peter Brötzmann.

===========

Jerusalem In My Heart (JIMH) is a live audio-visual performance project,with Lebanese producer and musician Radwan Ghazi Moumneh and Montréal based filmmaker Erin Weisgerber at its core.

JIMH is an immersive sonic and visual live experience, with an evolving effort to forge a modern experimental Arabic music wed to hand-made visuals using analog 16mm film at site-specific screen installations.

Musically, JIMH is guided by Moumneh’s melding of ‘traditional’ melismatic singing (in Arabic) and buzuk playing, with modern deployments of modular synthesis, filter banks, electronics, field recordings, etc. Weisgerber manipulates the photographic, chemical, and material properties of 16mm film to transform the world framed through her camera; rendering rhythmic images that exist between figuration and abstraction, external vision and internal landscape
